Yoga at Epic Zen


During your retreat at Epic Zen Peniche, you will enjoy two yoga lessons per day. One yoga class will be held in the morning, before a healthy breakfast, which will focus on softening and releasing practices. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a post surf early evening yoga session, which is a much more restorative, nourishing class, before a wonderful homemade dinner. There is a natural connection between yoga and surfing, the movement of the body and the rhythm of the ocean. Our retreats aim to fuse these two skills together.


Our experienced instructors teach yoga, which encourages flexibility and balance of the body and also an awareness of alignment and breath. Both sessions will help core strength, necessary for surfing, and the evening session, in particular, will relax your mind. Our yoga lessons are held on the terrace where amazing sea views will help to stimulate and focus your energy (and muscles!). You will be provided with mats and all materials, just come with an open heart!

Learn to Surf

Peniche & Baleal have a long history of excellent surf. Beautiful, remote beaches with consistently breaking, perfect waves, allow you to surf here all year long. The unique location of the long peninsular offers a wide variety of different surf spots for all levels and skill ability. Our picturesque fishing village is located 80 km north of Lisbon and attracts surfers here not only because of the good surfing conditions but also because of the mild climate, the delicious, traditional food, and its friendly locals.

 In addition, every year in October, Peniche – the capital of the waves – is one of the best stops on the World Surf League. At the Rip Curl Pro Portugal, the best surfers in the world compete for the world championship title with their best moves and the fastest barrels. Usually held at the famous “Supertubos” it is a spectacular event for both the visitors and professionals.

Our surf classes are provided once a day in cooperation with a local surf school and their experienced surf instructors. We will have a post breakfast ‘surfblast’, where you will get knowledge about the area’s waves, tides, currents, rules etc before heading to the ocean. Your surfing skills will be video coached and we will give you stunning photos of your surfing experience at the end of the retreat. Each day, all equipment and transportation to the beaches are included.
